I know the system is based on the Mutant Year: Zero and Tales from the Loop system. The boxed set looks nice and I'm thinking of grabbing it for Christmas. How does the game play?
Have you played MYZ and TFTL?
Of all Free League games Forbidden Lands is closest mechanically to MYZ.
It's designed for sandbox play and evoke some nostalgia for a different time in gaming while also having a lot of the quality of life stuff we expect from games these days. Forbidden Lands is my desert island game. It's very action-adventure oriented with some heroic flavors mixed in but the characters tend to be quite vulnerable compared to some other fantasy games out there. I also really like the focus on survival mechanics and tend to emphasize them in my game.
Any specific questions I can help with?
